Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung’s 2017 flagship 5.8” Android smartphone, also available as the larger 6.2” Galaxy S8+. The S8 has a curved AMOLED 2960 x 1440 display (18.5:9 aspect ratio) with minimal bezels for a compact footprint. The Galaxy S8 runs Android 7.0 Nougat with Samsung’s TouchWiz software and their Bixby virtual assistant (the voice activated feature won’t be available until later this spring).

The US model has the Snapdragon 835 CPU, while overseas models may have Samsung’s comparable Exynos 8895 CPU. The phone has 4GB RAM and 64 GB storage and a microSD card slot. It’s water resistant, has Bluetooth 5.0, Samsung Pay, a fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and facial recognition scanner. Like the Galaxy S7, it has a rear 12MP camera with f1/.7 lens and OIS that can shoot 4K video. The front camera is upgraded to 8MP. The Galaxy S8 is priced around $750 and the S8+ is around $850. The phones are available on most carriers.

dont let people in the reviews fool you, they say the speaker in the S8 is "average" i say they are spoiled, but by what, i have no fucking idea. speakers in phones have NEVER been great unless you could the 2 or 3 HTC phones that had "boom sound", if you compare the speaker in the S8 to every single other phone that also has a single speaker it sounds great, its loud and reproduces sound very well.

We really need to calculate screen size by area. For notebooks as well.

The iPhone is better

kevinmsft says:

It looks great. But let's call it for what it is… this screen ratio is stupid!

Look at it side by side with S7, the "usable" screen size is actually smaller as the screen is narrower.

The "screen" at the bottom is always taken by the non-physical home buttons and can never be used as screen.
